They’ll serve their last meal on New Year’s Eve. Mission Local reports:
The restaurant at 16th Street and South Van Ness Avenue serves Northeastern Italian and Central European food and wine has been highly rated since its opening in 2006. But Losa said the saturation of new restaurants on Valencia Street has impacted the foot traffic on 16th street and drawn customers away from Bar Bambino.
“Our location is being left out of this vortex of transformation on Valencia Street,” Losa said.
Yet, Losa has faith that 16th Street will see its own transformation in the future – even if it will be too late for Bar Bambino.
Sad beans! “Vortex of transformation!” Read on for more, including Christopher Losa’s letter to his employees.
